The Goddess altar

A new website, blog and look is in the works! Full reveal this summer and fall 🙂

The Bodacious Woman is an individual who embraces change and has the courage to step up and carve out me-time as an act of self-love. She makes self-care a lifestyle – a way of being – to truly honour herself in every area of her life.

If you have followed my newsletter and social media posts over the last year, you are aware of the brand metamorphosis that is taking place as I have embarked on an exciting (and sometimes overwhelming!) creative journey.


Bella Donna Esthetics is transforming into Bodacious Living by Lisa – an identity that encompasses all of my professional services and allows for growth beyond esthetics. Esthetics will continue to be the pillar of my business, but I look forward to exploring new aspects of my business under the Bodacious Living by Lisa banner.

Why Bodacious Living? Bodacious Living is all about taking risks in an admirable way. I want to support others as they find the courage to step up and live their best lives possible. I want to foster self-care at a fundamental level of being. After all, self-care should be about living in love and appreciation every day. Whether it is taking time for a morning guided meditation or spending an hour at the spa, bringing intention and thought to your being is a lifestyle of care that supports the ever-changing you at every stage of life.

AST_5463I am continuing to offer my spa services representing Self-Care through conscientious, customized esthetics, massage and body treatments. To continue self-care at home, you will still find local and organic high quality skin and body care products at my spa, as well as mineral makeup and of course, my own line of Skincare and Essential Oil Blends.

Under my new identity, I am launching a Self-Discovery component that speaks to the ever-changing woman within us all. I am here to create space for you to go within and check in with self, to hear your inner voice and to be inspired by your own truth. I am here to facilitate community between other women as we share the journey of life and carve out me-time to keep us fueled up and ready to take on the world.

Stay tuned for more exciting updates as Bodacious Living by Lisa unfolds this summer and fall.

Thank you for your support,


Package of the season

The gift of self-care

I highly recommend trying the Indian Head Massage after a stressful day or week. I arrived after a stressful day my mind was full of busyness and I felt exhausted, after my Indian Head massage treatment I felt relaxed and revitalized, my mind also felt calm, clear and peaceful, it was like my stress just melted away, I will definitely be back for this treatment.

After many treatments and time with Lisa over the past 25 years, I have come to appreciate her spirit, her warmth, and to trust her and her spa as a safe and inspiring center. Recently Lisa helped me see that a facial was nourishment for the skin and also a relaxing massage treatment for healthy radiant glowing skin.

I have been a client of Lisa’s since I was 12 years old. I feel very comfortable at her spa and trust her with my skincare spa services. Being a University student and on a budget I tend to use drug store products on my skin. I decided to invest in Goddess Bliss skincare; it’s been 3 months now. I have noticed many changes and benefits such as my skin feels more balanced, healthy, my dryness has diminished, my skin’s tone is more even I wear less make-up because my skin feels radiant. I now see the value of investing in quality skin care; I am committed to my new regime and love it.  Thank you Lisa for your expertise and creating such an awesome skincare line!

Coming to Lisa for the past 8 years is an important part of my self-care, I look forward to seeing Lisa monthly as her waxing is the most gentle I have experienced. This is more than getting a service it’s become a friendship, someone I trust to share on a personal level.  Her passion for personal growth has also inspired me to be part of her Sacred Circles for women.  I’ve enjoyed this aspect of self-discovery and taking it to a deeper level in a safe setting with other likeminded women. I love taking time to awaken and acknowledge my inner Goddess strengths.

Being in my 50’s I noticed my skin starting to sag so it was now or never to get on this. I contacted Lisa ready to take better care of my skin and also make time for just me to receive some nurturing. Within a week after having my facial treatment and using Goddess Bliss skincare, I noticed big changes. It has been almost a year now, my skin lines have softened my tonicity has improved, my skin feels radiant and alive. Regular monthly massage and facial treatments are a big part of my self-care now, I feel fantastic, I am worth it!  Thank you Lisa!

I love Lisa's monthly circle so much that it has become an essential part of my life - it is a ritual of sensual experience that encompasses aroma, words, song, meditation, movement, and self-expression. Lisa creates an atmosphere of magical beauty and peace that permeates her home; walking into her space is like stepping into a different dimension that we long for in our everyday lives. The sharing and connectedness amongst the group grows deeper with each circle and I leave feeling renewed and refreshed with a sense of joy and peace that filters into all aspects of my being. It grounds me back to my self and the core of goddess magic that resides within all of us but is forgotten in the daily stresses of living. I'm so grateful that I have this unique and beautiful experience to look forward to every month!
